420 with CNW — Marijuana Consumption Lounges May Open in Nevada by Year’s End

Adults aged 21 and older in Nevada may soon be able to use cannabis products publicly in cannabis consumption lounges by the end of the year after the Cannabis Compliance Board approved regulations for the consumption sites.

Although Nevada launched the recreational cannabis market back in 2017, the state only allows adults to consume the substance in private homes. This is despite the fact that Nevada’s cannabis industry has been a big draw for tourists, with plenty of visitors coming from out of state to sample products from cannabis retailers in Las Vegas. The result is that tourists are allowed to buy recreational cannabis, but they often have no place where they can consume it legally, especially if they aren’t friends with a local resident.

Last year, Nevada lawmakers approved a bill that legalized safe consumption sites and created two types of licenses for these establishments. Retail cannabis consumption lounges will involve retailers selling cannabis products for onsite consumption while independent cannabis consumption lounges will act as standalone lounges that sell ready-to-consume and single-serving cannabis products.

Regulators from the Cannabis Compliance Board overwhelmingly approved the new consumption site rules set forth by last year’s legalization bill in a recent board meeting.

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak said that Nevada was giving the cannabis industry priority while protecting its citizens and diversifying the economy. A big supporter of Nevada’s cannabis consumption lounge law, Sisolak said that the law would finally provide a place for tourists to legally consume recreational cannabis. He wrote in an op-ed that Nevada would approach consumption lounges in an entirely different way compared to other states, making the lounges all-around entertainment shops that offer food, beverages and other entertainment options.

Tyler Klimas, the executive director of the state Cannabis Control Board, believes that Nevada’s cannabis social consumption rules are the most robust in the country. He stated that lounges for cannabis will be run more like bars where customers buy single-use products and consume them onsite rather than having to bring their own cannabis goods.

The new rules require that all consumption is carried out in private, with activities such as smoking and vaping taking place in a room that’s separate from the lounge. That said, customers will not be allowed to take single-use products off site. Furthermore, cannabis consumption lounges will also have the option to prohibit smoking and vaping if they wish, and they will be required to provide their guests with free water.

As the marijuana laws in different states are eased, plenty of people are likely to benefit from the latest technologies in the field, such as the automated micro farms commercialized by Advanced Container Technologies Inc. (OTC: ACTX) ideal for indoor crop cultivation.
